Reconciliation + Design: Dialogue 3 - Synthesis
This event has passed.
These dialogues are a scaled Indigenization complement to decolonization curriculum. Applied science invites anyone who reflects on reconciling their design processes to join the conversation. This is an interdisciplinary conversation on reconciliation and design.
The speakers are Indigenous change-makers. We amplify their voices and listen to understand. Students and faculty practice authentic, experiential learning in dialogue circles, learning to weave together these Indigenous perspectives, ways of knowing, and ways of being, with our own as designers.
The breakout room facilitators are students. They will be practicing their skills leading dialogue circles.
